The Village Lake Las Vegas and Buckbean Brewing Co. are joining forces to present the Brews Best Village Beer Fest to raise funds for New Vista Community from 2 to 8 p.m. on March 13.
The festival will showcase a gadzooks numbers of breweries – mostly from Las Vegas – including Buckbean, Boulder Dam Brewing, Barley’s Brewing, Gordon Biersch Las Vegas, Backyard Brew Pub, Stone Brewing Co., Tenaya Creek, Sonoran Brewing Co., Nevada Beverage and Del Norte Brewing Co.
Breweries will be set up along the waterfront’s cobblestone streets of The Village Lake Las Vegas. Guests will be able to taste beers while being serenaded by live musicians- that means NO DJS!

A few nice things about October in Las Vegas: The fricken hot heat of summer which sears your eyelids to your eyeballs abates for six months; kids go back to school, giving their parents at least a semblance of renewed sanity; and an Oktoberfest is promoted in nearly every nook and cranny in Las Vegas, hopefully, to give the venue a revenue bump.
One of the premiere events is the Jacktoberfest Beer Festival that runs today from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Sunset Station in Henderson.
It features 30 different beers from all over the world. And if that is not enough to satiate your needs, then maybe the live music from The King Mixers, Hair Nation and Sin City Sinners will- these are not your ordinary garage bands.
Included in the $20 entry fee for this event is a plethora of events that only drunkards could truly appreciate: $500 for Sexiest Oktoberfest costume (or what many of you normally wear anyway), Hooters Bikini Beer-Chugging Contest, BBQ Grill Toss, Weiner Dog Races, and so much more.
For the really commercial strength chuggers there’s an after party inside Club Madrid later in the day. No word yet on whether escorts will be allowed to accompany the inebriated.
Please call 702-547-7777 or log on to www.sunsetstation.com for more details.
Please, arrange for a cab to get back, enjoying the day even more.
MonteLago Village Resort is nationally known for their luxurious Spa Vita Di Lago, boutique shopping and a championship golf course. But on Saturday, March 14, they are adding a whole new wrinkle: The MonteLago Village Resort and Buckbean Breweing will host the first ever Village Beer Fest to raise funds for the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation of Las Vegas. Tickets are $20 per person for the four-hour event; ticket cost includes an engraved commemorative glass.
Buckbean Brewing recently expanded into the Las Vegas and Northern California markets. Currently is it is the largest production microbrewery in Nevada.
